CENTER // shapes us

+  JESUS

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Jesus -- in his life, death, and resurrection -- will always remain central to who we are, what we believe, and how we live. The truth of the scriptures -- in which Jesus is central -- informs, inspires, shapes and sustains our vision and mission. We strive to have every aspect of our church be submitted to Jesus as we depend on his Spirit, who dwells within his people. Jesus is our Savior and King. He is our Hope and our Peace.

VALUES  //  GUIDE US

+  LOVE IS THE POINT:  The two greatest commandments are to love God and to love your neighbor. All we do must be motivated by love.

+  LOVE HONORS OTHERS:  We will outdo one another in showing honor, especially toward those who are different.

+  LOVE GETS UNCOMFORTABLE:  We initiate, adjust, forgive, sacrifice, and count the cost for the sake of love. Expect to get uncomfortable.

+  LOVE EMPOWERS THE VULNERABLE:  We are not content with only providing aid. We will go the extra mile to empower.

+  LOVE SEEKS JUSTICE: Peace, righteousness and justice are always linked. As we've been made righteous, we will seek justice.

+  LOVE SHARES THE GOSPEL:  The greatest expression of love is to share the good news of Jesus, the power of God to save.
